How i spent Black Friday

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results

No, I didn't get up at 3am to wait in line at Best Buy. I spent the afternoon showing houses to one of my clients. He settled on the sale of his home last week and has put his things in storage and is staying with friends until he buys that next home. A bit unconventional, but he will be able to move forward quickly once he identifies the home he wants. Unlike the typical Black Friday buyer, he didn't throw a house in his cart and head for the checkout lane, hoping it is the right one.

I've shown homes/written contracts on just about every holiday that exists. I wish I'd written a contract this weekend!

Sounds like he's in a great position to make a decision, working with quite a few buyers right now who sold their current home and are looking to build!

I sold a house on Thanksgiving once but will never again sell a house on a Christian holiday. Had a bad experience one Easter Sunday. Had a nervous 1st time home buyer. Showed houses, sat down with them in my office for 3-4 hours writing/explaining the contract and they chickened out. They weren't Christain so they didn't think it was such a problem I guess.

Working on the Holidays just goes with the business. Hope you find a suitable home soon.
